If Gov. Corbett were actually serious about dismantling the state's coercive liquor sales monopoly, instead of touting a new nominee to the Liquor Control Board — which should not even exist — he would begin by advocating the dismantling of the LCB itself (“LCB nears privatization with Corbett's nominees,” Oct. 6 and TribLIVE.com).
This socialist trade-restraining organization has violated the rights of Pennsylvanians for decades and has caused market-distorting effects that have exclusively benefited Harrisburg's pull-peddling politicians and their union overlords.
